This is the removal of trees in confined spaces, or where extra care is required to minimise damage to the surrounding area. This involves taking trees down piece by piece and quite often involves aerial rigging.


The removal of trees that can be dealt with from ground level.

Crown Reduction

With crown reduction we reduce a certain percentage of the overall height and size of a tree by removing branches evenly throughout the crown, leaving a balanced and maintained shape.

Crown Lifting

Crown lifting is the select removal of branches between the base of the canopy and ground level. This allows more light beneath trees and can prevent obstruction.

Crown Thinning

This is the careful selection of branches to be removed from around a trees canopy. This reduces how dense a tree is and can improve light and views to a property.

Dead Wooding

This is the removal of all dead, diseased and unhealthy branches from the tree. This can not only improve the safety of your trees but also improve their appearance.

Stump Grinding

This is a tidy, cost efficient and effective way to remove stumps from your property.

Logs and Woodchip

Occasionally we do have dry firewood for sale and all our woodchip is recycled as garden mulch. Please enquire for costs and availability.

Hedge Care

This involves pruning a hedge back to a desirable size and/or the ongoing trimming and maintenance to ensure it stays at a certain size.
